Need to know: Caring for your hair at homeTuesday, August 1 2017
To us great hair is healthy hair. Behind every gorgeous head of hair there are a few easy to adopt habits. Healthy hair begins with the right products, tools and lifestyle choices these start at home. Here are our top picks for healthy, happy hair.
With a healthy, clean scalp comes healthy hair! Using a cleansing shampoo cleans, prevents build up of oils and removes dandruff. Our must have detox product is Original and Mineral’s Detox Shampoo. With peppermint and tea tree to cleanse, invigorate and cool the scalp this product will make your hair feel minty fresh!
2. USE THE RIGHT SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
No two people are the same and neither is their hair, therefore everyone’s shampoo routine needs to be different. Shampoo and conditioner creates the foundation for our hair and hairstyle, creating the building blocks for all the other products we use. To find out what shampoo and conditioner you should be using check out our last blog post.
3. STAY AWAY FROM SULPHATE
Sulphates, while effective in cleaning hair, can also cause major DAMAGE to your locks. An easy way to change your hair care routine for the better is buying products marked ‘sulphate free’. We make it a priority to only sell products we would use thats why we only sell low chemical, sulphate free products.
4. MOISTURIZE and TREAT
While most of us have no problem washing and conditioning our hair, it’s easy to forget about maintaining moisture. Avoid breakage, dryness and prevent excessive split ends by using an at home treatment every few weeks.
Products to try:
Davines Circle treatments – *The Quick Fix Circle* is like a morning coffee for your hair. It hydrates and detangles hair in only 3 minutes, making it soft, silky and manageable. The perfect hair mask for all hair types, your hair will be left with added shine, volume and hydration.
Davines Circle treatments – *The Purity Circle* is a purifying antioxidant full scalp and hair mask which removes impurities from pollution (dust, heavy metals) and completes the perfect purifying routine.
Original & Mineral – *Seven Day Miracle Moisture Masque* is a delicious, hydrating cream hair treatment to replenish stressed or dry locks.
5. WHAT YOU PUT IN COMES OUT
The best habit you can adopt for your hair and scalp is adopting a healthy life style. Drinking plenty of water and eating well will ensure your hair stays healthy and strong from the inside out. Drinking plenty of H2Oa and eating lots of protein and nutrient rich foods.
6. BOX COLOUR IS NOT YOUR FRIEND
Not only does box colour contain nasties such as Parabens and Ammonia it is also a ‘one size fits all’ method of colour hair. This means you may end up with a colour far from the one you desired even though the box might say ‘cool ashy blonde’. Alternatives like Fabuloso Pro Gloss are great for when you can’t get into the salon and can be completely customised to your salon colour.
7. GIVE THE HEAT A REST
It’s no secret that excessive heat can do damage to hair that has been compromised with years of bleaching or use of products containing nasties like sulphates. We know its hard to avoid heat styling completely. We recommend you pick your battles, if you’re spending the weekend at home why not towel your hair really well then finish with the blowdryer, you’ll notice in the salon before we start our blowdry we make sure the hair is already 50% dry with a towel. Dripping hair takes a lot longer to blowdry also. If you have to use your curling iron or straightener everyday lower the heat and use products that protect against the heat. Our favs are: Original & Mineral *Frizzy Logic* and Davines *All In One Milk*.
8. USE THE RIGHT TOOLS
If you want to achieve that salon finish at home using the right tools is key:
1. Round brush for bouncy or smooth blowdrys.
2. Tangling brush for in showers use and detangling.
3. Good quality hair dryer! Our pick, GHD Air achieve salon quality blowdries every time.
4. A flat paddle brush for quick smooth blowdrys.
